This is just where I want to be. It would be fresh to chill in my little urban garden and eat my fill of all the little bugs that get in the way of my gardener’s plants.
Today actually started off badly. I forgot my camera. I know, I know, it is just about unthinkable. I hadn’t left my camera behind in more than a year. I contemplated returning to my home to snatch it up, but that would have put me mad behind schedule on shabbat. So I decided to just roll with it.
Once I got to where I was going, about 2 hours later, we were all reminded that the earth is a living and breathing organism, with a aftershock that made me jump out of my chair. It hit rather hard and fast.
On my way home, I kept on pondering on what I was going to hook up for the shabbat dinner, and I settled on a mushroom quiche, and some mustard marinaded new potatoes.
I was a bit exhausted from my travels, so as the clouds rolled in I just sat in my little garden, with my kitties looking up at the sky. That was when I noticed the ladybug. I realized that they had all emerged from their cocoons and were crawling all over my grapefruit, pomegranite and lemon tree. These guys, and gals are great. They just much up all the aphids in the garden. So I decided to grab my camera, and get shots of them.
Remember the Father’s little creatures too. They are as important to our lives as any animal.
Have a beautiful and restful sabbath.
